One of the mos spectacular sights in North America is to be seen at Grand Coulee Dam, where the overflow from the now-full Columbia River reservoir, impounded by the 10 1/2 million cubic yard concrete structure, plungers over the giant spillway.  Nearly 2,000,000 gallons of water fall over the man-made precipice with a tremendous roar every second.  Power is being developed in a large power-house flanking the cataract, in which three 108,000 kilo-watt hydro-electric generators, largest ever constructed have been assembled.
